"Battery Exhausted" always after a few months of mild use

ziggy, Amazon
12 April 2011
  • Summary: I got this camera as a gift for Christmas in 08 and by the spring of 09 it started giving me trouble. I use rechargable batteries, and it started shutting down and telling me that the batteries were exhausted. After 3 more months of use, it would barely be usable before shutting down.

DON'T BUY THIS.

Sandee, Amazon

  • Summary: None of the other features matter, because EVERY time you want to take a picture, the BATTERIES are DEAD. It uses batteries like a PIG, and if you can't use the camera, it's no use rating it. I bought it for my daughter, and had to apologize to her, shamefacedly.

Not worth it

R. Smith, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my son one year ago for Christmas and it went through the batteries like crazy. It didn't produce a quality picture either. Fast forward one year and I had to buy him another one for this Christmas because it stopped working altogether. Very disappointing.

Nice features - but a battery hog

Wally, Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: Looks like GE tried packing lots of features in this camera. I really tried to like this camera, but the one I got is a battery hog -- even after the firmware update. When I first got this camera, it didn't work with rechargeable batteries.

Tigerdirect Availability Info Inaccurate

S. Chhak, Amazon
4 January 2009
  • Summary: You need to call the merchant (TD) to verify the availability before ordering. The site info is not accurate. I ordered a package, camera and SD card on 1/02, and through out the order process, TD kept showing the expected delivery date as 1/05.
